  1. Off Marley its Green Toads that are the problem Bagged out on flatties and caught as many Green Toads. Grandad
  2. Stayed in the caravan park there, at settlement point, caught blackfish and bream along the rock wall. close in. Was using bread burly, Pumped nippers passed the ferry and had a feed of whiting. Saw a couple of Flathead caught from a boat doing drifts, One chap in the caravan park caught a nice Jewfish one night. Grandad
  3. You can fish all along Settlement Point road, and if you go to the end past where the ferry leaves there are some shallow sandy areas, Town beach also a good spot to try. Grandad

    I was fishing off Cronulla yesterday 15/04/2019 when a military aircraft flew over, A C130 Hercules. My GPS stopped working for Approximately 30 minutes. Was this an act by the military. Has anyone else experienced this. Grandad.
  5. It’s one of those cases, you are dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t. The grandfather thought he was doing the right thing, and has lost a grandchild under his care, he would give his life if he thought it would bring the child back. His life and the parents will never be the same again. My condolences to the family, I am in tears as I write this, every life is precious. Please take care at the ramp. Grandad
  6. On the rotary too, that must have given you weeks of pleasure watching them from eggs to fledglings.
  7. Hi Ads Just purchased that App, looks great, a lot easier than carrying a field guide for identifying birds. Thanks Grandad
  8. Hi Neil Re Hi Grandad, do they only come in blue? I thought I'd seen the male in another colour. There's lots of them in my area, flitting about all over the place. Cheers My "Simpson and Day" Field guide, lists over a dozen variety's, some of them do have red color on them, Was going to post a picture from the book but copyright forbids it. You will have to photograph and post a picture of them. Not as easy as it sounds the little blighters won't stay still long enough. Enjoy them whilst they last, the Noisy Miners have driven them away from my area. All the best Grandad
  9. Here's a male,Taken at the Bago Winery Port Macquarie
  10. Always looking for that special photo that you look at over and over again. I am always looking at photographing birds,(of the feathered kind). Two shots come to mind, the first is a Fairy Wren that was watching me at Kurnell. The other is a Blue Faced Honey Eater that was feeding young at South West Rocks. Looking foreward's to some special shots. grandad
  11. looks great, I have a bottle of white, what's the address.
  12. The photos were posted and shared on the I Love Caringbah South Facebook page. Spotted from his house at Gannons Bay, Glenn Warren photographed this fever of stingrays in the Port Hacking. An afternoon cuppa from his Boomerang Avenue waterfront balcony came with a spectacular display of nature. Mr Warren captured the rays swimming in unison, about 20 metres from his waterfront residence. The photos were posted and shared on the I Love Caringbah South Facebook page. “I’ve lived here for 10 years and seen dolphins, seals and blue gropers,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like this.”
  13. Good catch there, now you will have to take them more often, and its great to have someone else to answer the did you catch anything question. Grandad
  14. Its a white camelion fish you can't see it as its blended into the background Grandad
  15. Hi Sean Welcome to Fishraider, A bit more info would help, IE where in Sydney are you, Public transport or do you have a car, are you available during the week or just weekends, do you have your own gear. This info would help someone looking for a fishing partner. Grandad
